We are delighted to welcome Emily Capell back to Esquires after an amazing show in February 2020.
A singer-songwriter and musician from North West London. Emily Capell has it all, the voice, the talent and the beehive. With a wide range of influences from Dolly Parton to The Clash, Emily has brought a new genre of country, ska, doo wopp and pop to the music scene.
Since starting out in 2010 Emily has released 3 Eps entitled ‘Who Killed Smiley Culture?’, ‘Who Framed Winston Silcott?’ and ‘Who Stands With Latasha Harlins?’ The much-anticipated debut album ‘Combat Frock’ was released in October 2019 which included Emily’s single ‘I Found A Footballer To Marry Me’. The album was a huge success only growing her fanbase and cementing her credentials as the new singer to watch.
Although a lot of 2020’s shows were postponed, Emily had a highly successful year including writing and recording for established acts such as Dreadzone and getting a presenter slot on Totally Wired Radio. Emily’s highlight of the year was performing in front of Prince Charles and Camilla at 100 Club, London in order to support the arts and entertainment sector that was devastated by the pandemic. 2021 will be a successful year with so much already planned, including support slots lined up with Madness in the UK and abroad, a new album, full headline tour and an app release it is already shaping up to be a big year.
Emily’s unique personality and independence have earned her a dedicated and loyal following across the UK and abroad including Middle East, Africa and Asia. This following has come from her own tours and when she has been on support to artists including Texas, Rhoda Dakar, Glen Matlock, The Blinders, Roddy Radiation, Mari Wilson and most recently The Selecter on their 40th Anniversary 2019 UK tour.
In 2018 Emily won the ‘Jools Holland Best Newcomer’ award at the Boisdale venues. She has been record of the week on Radio X, 6 music and BBC radio London with her floor filler infection track ‘Bonanza’.
‘Her trappy, snappy lyrics echo some of the great female solo artists like Winehouse and Allen but Capell is very much her own woman and one who will make a big impression on the minds of the many in 2020.’
